About Us

NorthRiver offers two options for weddings. The Captain’s Cabin is our outdoor venue which provides room for about 50-125 guests. It is situated on the beautiful lakefront of Lake Tuscaloosa and features waterfalls, beautiful rock faces and a peaceful feel. Its multilevel design and space leaves a lot of room for creativity with how you use the space! 

Our Yacht Club building is our main event space and also the favorite for weddings year round! It provides a huge amount of space with two floors each with their own ballrooms and multiple bars. The building features many famous art pieces and is itself a work of art. Our wedding package allows you the entire building for the whole day (8am-12pm) and has more than enough space for getting ready, hosting your ceremony and hosting your reception! You can even take your pictures around the property and never have to leave the site! We can host almost any party here with room for anywhere from 100-350 people for a seated meal or up to 600 for a cocktail reception style. Although the best fit for weddings here is between the 150-350 person range, we can accommodate almost anyone. 

We provide all of the catering and bar needs for any event held at NorthRiver.  We can also create any food items you would like, our menus are only offered to give suggestions!

Thank you for your interest and we would love to meet with you and give you a tour of the property! It is important to note that because we are an exclusively private club, events can only be held for members or the sponsored guests of members. If you would like to see a preview of our facilities, please take a tour through our gallery page! We'd love to speak more with you, email us at hpetty@northriveryc.com!
